Bertke Brothers LLC 

            Our company was started in 1998, when after twenty one years as a sales representative I decided to start over. My customers had a need for the highest quality fourteen karat gold chains, bracelets and earrings. I began to assemble our collection by attending the gold jewelry manufacturers’ show in Vicenza, Italy where I established relationships with both large and small Italian manufacturers in order to directly import karat gold jewelry.

            My brother Mike joined the company in 2004 after many years as a jewelry sales representative. Since then, we have made many more buying trips back to Vicenza. We also have a great pair of Italian agents who help negotiate price with our manufacturers, check the quality of the merchandise before it is shipped and keep us informed of new Italian products between our visits.

            As the price of Gold increased substantially, we added Italian made sterling silver and fourteen karat gold filled jewelry to our line. We have the same high standards with these less expensive items as we have always had with our karat gold products. Our sterling merchandise is always Rhodium plated. The links on our chains are soldered and we use lobster claws almost exclusively.

            We feel that it is more important than ever that today's Independent Jeweler carry quality merchandise that surpasses what is available in discount stores or on the internet.

It is our hope that this catalog will assist you in working with your customers and will make restocking our line easier and more convenient. Thanks to our loyal customers who have supported us over the years.
